for the benefit, they did not use the amount for public parking. this would increase your parking. this would still generate more funds than the proposed project. there are no vacancies on high street as it is so there is a demand for commercial units. this should still be kept and commercial use the zone. a thank-you. >> i would like to remind the commission that we are not questioning the sensitivity of the design, we are questioning the use. you have heard enough serious issues for the commission to take discretionary review and continue the project. all of the issues that you heard today, the density of the neighborhood, the mixed needs, the transit hill first, -- russian hill first, transit last. there are comments of all sorts of perspective. that is what you need to look at. it just to put in perspective, the view from the street is this -- this is saying the massive building and we need to think about that as will get the overall project. you should look at the use of this building. the project that you heard prior to this, the truth is, there are people that drive cars to at&t where
of elevation, these are very important to us. precipitation, that is our bread and butter. what form does it fall into a range versus no, how much of it falls? the timing of precipitation. these are critical factors that are engaged in such work. the variability is where our vulnerability is come. this includes drought, storm intensity. what is the severity of drought in the future? how much worse will storms get in the future? what will this mean for water quality? of course, there is a sea level rise. this is a critical factor for those of us along the coast. climate change affects the hydrological. precipitation, compensation. -- condensation. we are seen as first responders to the potential effect of climate change. our everyday work is bound up in the hydrological cycle. i'm going over not so much why we should care but how we should care about climate change, how we should approach evaluating the issue. we are approaching this on a timer rise in which matches up with the way we think. most apartments have capital programs. frequently, we think of capital improvement programs, large
buy at your store, and it has a big role. it protects public health. however, its primary use for us is disinfection. disinfection of drinking water and also the treatment of water. it is also used for odor control in our waste water collection system. so it will be this last piece that i will be focusing the discussion on today. this was question a lot in the media, so i will talk about that in one piece. i should note that it is one of the many methods that we used to combat odor in waste water. so where do we use this? on the charts year, about 50% of the sodium hypochlorite is used for disinfecting water. about 30% is used for disinfecting and treating waste water, and the remaining amount is used for over control -- odor control. it is not the only chemical we use. we also use peroxide and a ferriss solution -- ferous -- ferrous solution. they are cite specific. this is basically from where the odors are coming from. you want to know what this costs. that is what you are looking at there. while the total chemical addition has gone down, you will note that for sodium hypochlorite
that we use. the previous gentleman was mentioning about how steam loops are a bad thing, and in the traditional fashion, they probably are. an apartment or units or development, instead of a traditional water boiler, a steam heater, whatever, yes, you are burning fossil fuel, but you are getting a 85% sun, 87% efficiency, instead of the below 50% efficiency is -- but you are getting a 85%, 87% efficiency, instead of the below 50% efficiency if you are using natural gas. i do not think we will get rid of that in the next 10 years, but i would really encourage you to move this as it is, and, believe me, on march 24, the next task force meeting, we are really hoping that is our last meeting, because there were two things that we were tasked with, including closing power plants, so it would really make my day. thank you. president vietor: thank you. public comments? any further public comments? i just wanted to clarify this amendment, and with the council's blessing, we can move it. this directs the general manager to return to the commission with further details, including
1983. what is before you is a proposed change of use for 1945 hyde street, the valencia garage. change it from a public parking facility to a residential condominium. in addition to this change in use is a request for a rear yard variants, which is before mr. sanchez today. my understanding is that a change of use must serve the community affected. the residents of russian hill would not be best served by granting this change of use. the density, topography, housing stock, and aging population will suffer with the loss of this parking garage. so mr. sanchez does not feel ignored this afternoon, the project sponsor is also requesting approval of a rearguard variance to reduce the required rear yard of 25 feet by 60% to 810-foot rear yard. since the developer would not be providing sufficient rearguard open space for the new residents, additional demands would be placed on the very little existing public open space in the neighborhood. please do not approve this change of use, and please do not approve this variance. thank you very much. commissioner olague: thank you.

that are helping us to understand our own vulnerability locally. i will move forward to the costs. the commission asks how much we are spending on this climate change resilience work. those costs are summarized to a large degree here starting with the most expensive item which is the single adaptation item. this is estimated at about 10- $20 million which is pending any future design work that my show that that figure needs to be changed. we have done some investing in a white papers that have been very educational for us with the water utility climate alliance and the calibration budget. each of these had been left wrist by significant investments from other places and i think it illustrates one of the advantages with the coalition that we have been doing. we can make an investment and understanding better these issues and follow that with many investments from others that make the project program and our understanding that much more robust. we have money coming into the project to bring these people together to do the work. what is not included are the soft costs, the modeling groups, the south
